Abstract
Compare this edition with my two editions by Mary Howitt, dated 1845 and 1850. This edition takes exactly 201 pages for the one hundred fables because there is a preface for English children on 1. After that there is French and German always on the left-hand page and English and the illustration on the right-hand page. See my comments about the illustrations in the records for those 1845 and 1850 editions. This may now be my earliest English edition of Speckter's work. This copy was bound by Burn on Kirby St. There is a T of C at the book's beginning. At its end, this edition marks its printer, Manning and Mason in London. It is curious that Hey is not even mentioned here. Speckter is mentioned only in the title.
